The White House said the American Civil Liberties Union showed its true colors Thursday by threatening a lawsuit to block President Trump’s executive order that protects political speech by religious institutions and faith-based groups.

“I don’t think anybody is surprised at the ACLU wants to come out against Republicans,” said White House deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders. “They talk about debating tolerance except when it comes to people of faith and I think that this is actually [something] they should be celebrating, that people are being protected.”

The ACLU said it would sue because of the action and another executive order that lifted the Obamacare mandate for faith-based institutions to pay for abortion services. The ACLU called the orders a “thinly-veiled efforts to unleash his conservative religious base into the political arena while also using religion to discriminate.”


  1. the ACLU is not anti-religion, they are anti-Christian. If someone can show me a case where the ACLU has gone after Muslims or Buddhists, I sure would like to see it.

    The ACLU is nothing more than a socialist prop, designed to undermine the Judeo-Christian foundations of our country and its institutions.

  2. John Jay: Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.
    The only hope for the future of this nation is the same faith that gave birth to this nation. Amen.
